SUP Hawaii

SUP Hawaii! Today we went stand up paddle boarding except I have a vestibular defect so I did sit down paddle boarding. Back in 2000 I had a left inner ear infection and now have permanent high frequency deafness, tinnitus and poor balance. 

First things first though. For breakfast Bron made poached eggs.


After breakfast we headed to Surf N Sea at 62–595 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa, HI 96712 to hire paddle boards and a kayak. 



I spent some time in a kayak and some sitting on a paddle board shooting photographs of what was around me. 

I shot a few randoms out on the water on stand up paddle boards.

I had a jalapeño spam, jam, avocado, cheese sandwich. It was delicious. I love these sort of sandwiches that you made on site at a picnic after a lot of physical exertion. They always taste good. This was my first experience of jalapeño spam and it was tremendous.



After lunch we went for a walk along the beach and saw turtles.

After the joy of seeing some turtles we headed into the local town of Haleiwa and to the famous Matsumoto’s shave ice. Why is it shave ice and not shaved ice? This place is famous for the texture and flavours. I choose a Matsumoto combination of lemon, coconut and pineapple plus condensed milk. It is spectacularly good.

This was amazing. The flavours so awesome. The condensed milk added a new dimension to shaved ice. I love it.  

At the shops there is also a spam stand. I bought a T-shirt. I’ll post a photograph in the next couple of days.

On the way back to the condominium we stop for supplies and I find some teriyaki spam musabi. My blogging friend Spencer Lum has told me this is a must try. 



After the musabi we do a little more snorkeling and then it is time for dinner. Bron cooked pork chops Hawaiian style with pineapple and ham and cheese. We then had Ted’s bakery chocolate custard pie and pineapple Queensland nut pie with a doughnut and haupia pudding.
